I collect beauty books and enjoy reading them to learn new techniques, use of colors in a different way, reminders on how to properly use products and to simply enjoy the pictures. SIMPLY GLAMOROUS by Gary Cockerill has all this and more. When I was sent this book for review I had no idea what a treat I was in for. The subtitle “Make-up transformations to make you look & feel fabulous”, captures the essence of this book in a few words yet you need to experience the book and photography to truly understand how amazing the book is and how it can help your cosmetic life.
Looking at Gary Cockerill himself isn’t too shabby either. Gary is a U.K. Makeup Artist who is known for his artistry. He works with the media, entertainers, celebrities, as well as real life people like you and me. He’s sharing his expertise in his book so that we can learn to not only look our best but also to feel our best.
There is so much to the cosmetic world and we often get stuck in a rut. Simply Glamorous not only gets me out of a rut but reminded me of so many tips I thought I was using and realized I hadn’t. I was taking for granted that I knew a lot about the cosmetic world so I was thrilled what I could learn from this simply beautiful book.
Get ready to look at just a few of the many pages that totally impressed me.
Each transformation is a chapter with step by step pictures and directions. You can walk your way through what Gary did to try it on you. You can learn what essential tools and products you need too.
All age groups and ethnic groups are represented in Simply Glamorous. There are chapters on Contouring, Blush, Foundation, Face Shapes, Bronzer and more. If there’s something you want to learn about, it’s in this informative book.
If I could have taken a picture of every page in the book I would have. But you need to own this book to fully appreciate it. Whether you want to have a sleek unmakeup makeup look or become a sex kitten, you’ll find a section that’s perfect for your needs.
We’ll be talking a lot about holiday gifts for the next month and this is one I think you should consider. Even with someone like a beauty blogger who owns it all, this is a rare treat and one I’d love to find under my tree. Amazon has this discounted from $26.99 to $18.74. It’s a beautiful reference book that you’ll enjoy over and over. I love it and am sure you will too. — Marcia
